Agent: ‘Insigne not affected by critics’

Agent Vincenzo Pisacane said critics would go easier on Lorenzo Insigne if he didn’t play at Napoli and was ‘disgusted’ by the 3-0 defeat by default to Juventus.

Napoli’s appeal against the 3-0 defeat over the table was rejected, as they argued the local authorities stopped them from playing the match that was scheduled to take place in Turin at the start of October.

“These are political issues, I’m honestly disgusted by what is happening,” Pisacane told Radio Punto Nuovo. “It’s not clear who is in charge, who commands and where to speak.

“Italy must do something. I understand it can’t think about football, but it should give someone a mandate to do it.

“The local authorities of Florence can decide to block, others can send players around the world and the local authorities couldn’t block the players of Napoli.”

Insigne has received criticism for struggling to stand out with Italy, but Pisacane said the Partenopei winger ‘would have been forgiven a bit more’ if he played for a different club.

“Luckily Insigne doesn’t care, he’s a champion” he said.  “I believe we must focus on what these great champions do, not what they do wrong.

“[Roberto] Baggio missed a decisive penalty in USA 1994, and he is the greatest talent we’ve had. If Insigne played for another team, perhaps they would have forgiven him a bit more.”

“Mancini will decide [if he plays against Poland].”

Italy face Poland in the UEFA Nations League on Sunday and could go top of the group with a win at the Mapei Stadium.
